I'm not sure I understand the question... You've dumped your Windows
repository and loaded it into a new repository on a Linux machine.
And what happened next? Are you trying to check out a new working
copy, and it's failing in some way? (If so, in what way?) Or are you
trying to use an existing working copy and it's still pointing at the
old repository? (If so, have you used "svn switch --relocate"?) Can
you be more specific about the problem? Maybe start by telling us
what you did, what happened, and what you expected to happen instead.
